Fall Tour 2019

« Return to the Event List

We’re returning to a terrific route through SW Wisconsin and SE Minnesota for the 2019 Schonesland Fall Tour. Our trip will begin with dinner at the Pepper Sprout restaurant in Dubuque Friday, Oct. 11th at 8:00 pm. The Downtown Dubuque

Holiday Inn will be headquarters Friday night.

Breakfast Saturday morning “on your own” will be followed by a brief driver’s meeting in the hotel bar. We’ll tour SW
Wisconsin Saturday morning before lunch at Potosi Brewing Co. We have reserved a room on the 4th floor. We’ll order lunch from a limited menu and sample some of the local brews. The cost of lunch is included in the participation fee along with soda, tea, lemonade and coffee.

Saturday afternoon we’ll travel some challenging and picturesque roads north including a stretch you’ll likely be talking about over cocktails and dinner in Winona, MN Saturday night. We’re staying at The Plaza Hotel and Suites in Winona. A room has been reserved for appetizers and dinner next door at The Green Mill restaurant.

Sunday morning again is breakfast on your own. The Green Mill opens early, or you can sleep in if you prefer…OR… consider joining some “Porsche enthusiasts” for an early morning 45 minute trip through twisting roads and scenic pastures before breakfast. In years past this “eye-clearing” drive has resulted in big smiles and hearty appetites at the breakfast table.

At 10:00 am Sunday we’ll meet in the hotel lobby for another brief driver’s meeting before continuing the tour into SE Minnesota. We’ll wind up the tour in Preston, MN about Noon where we can fill our tanks with high octane before
heading home “on your own”.
